I'll keep it simple and not even both trying to make excuses...
Training Schedule (11.17.14 - 11.23.14
11.17.14 // Did not make it to AM Hot Yoga. Fail.
11.18.14 // Did not do my 30 minute Disney run. Fail.
11.19.14 // Did not make it to AM Hot Yoga. Fail.
11.20.14 // Did not do my 30 minute Disney run. Fail
11.21.14 // Rest day! lol
...actually, I was ill on Friday, so it HAD to be a rest day. This taught me that if I'm healthy, regardless of how cold it is out, I should still get in my workout. I prepped myself all week and was looking forward to my 11 mile Disney run on Saturday (part of the reason I ok'ed myself in missing workouts) in beautiful balmy 50 degree weather - but it came to a crashing halt since I felt nauseous at work most of the day on Friday, and eventually tossed my cookies once I got home. =( My hubs took amazing care of me though, he's the best!
11.22.14 // Did not do my 11 mile Disney run.
I don't consider this a fail like the other work outs because I WANTED to run but couldn't. I woke up and still felt awful, and decided to spend the day vegging and working on my niece's surprise Christmas gift that I had been neglecting to work on (see: knitting). So, at least it was productive in that regard. It killed me that I couldn't go out and enjoy the nice weather that Colorado was providing me - but it was for my own good. After not eating all day Friday or Saturday, I finally had real food Saturday night.
I did take a brisk walk with the hubs and Toby down to my super close and convenient knitting store so I could pick up 2 more balls of yarn to finish off my project. I think the walk ended up being just shy of a mile, so at least I kinda enjoyed the weather (and I know Toby loved the jaunt!)
11.23.14 // Ran 1.82 miles.
I still wanted to take it easy today, but was feeling MUCH better. I had a list of things to do (see: laundry, clean house for dog sitter, etc) but was getting antsy. I decided that amongst my productivity, I would go out for a run. The temps dropped significantly going into Sunday (which was great because the Mountains got a ton of snow and that's where we're going for Thanksgiving) but it meant running in 30 degree weather. I still do not like running with layers or in the cold, but thought I should do it given I was missing out on my 11 mile haul.
I had hoped to do a 3 mile run BUT I wasn't even though mile 1 and felt a little queasy. I decided to turn back around earlier than planned to head back towards home, just in case. I normally hate completing odd mileage with a run, but in this case i just finished when I got back to our doorstep.
I ran/walked my first mile in 11:16. Not my best by any means, but considering I hadn't worked out since the Pumpkin Pie 5k, had been sick, I was ok with it. There is always next time!
How do you get out of a workout rut?
